Be [That Somethi 

When you first walk into high school, you 
immediately begin to ponder who you 
want to be here, what you want to 
OOOOinpfish/ and how you want others to 
see you. In order to find yourself, 
however, you have to find something that 
makes you, you. Like a piece of a collage, 
each of us is unique in our own special 
way. Whether youVe the star football 
player, a mathlete, or a yearbook editor, 
finding something that youVe truly 
[ •T«H!ft»1it»lfel about is what molds you into 
the person that you grow up to be. At 
BHS, the possibilites are endless. With 
handsful of clubs and Division title sports 
teams, you are bound to find something 
in this high school where your true colors 
can shine through. In the end, one of the 
greatest feelings from high school will 
be to look back and say, "Hey I was a 
part of something in that school. I made 
a difference." High school is not only a 
transitional time from adolescence to adult- 
hood, but it's something that makes you 
laugh, something that inspires you, or even 
just something that interests you, [be that 
something] that everyone will remember. 
[Be that something] that no one 




:i: 



The academics at BHS are not only challenging and thought 
provoking, but also diverse and ennpowering. Students at BHS 
not only learn the basics to help them succeed in college, but 
also the basics in order to succeed in life. 



Be [Athletic] 



Sports in the fall and v/inter seasons were about new experi- 
ences and broadening new horizons. Whether it was having 
new coaches, new teammates, or even a whole new team, the 
athletes pushed through obstacles and gave it their all. It didn't 
matter if they were bleeding, sweating, or crying, athletes gave 
it their all. 




I'DY^IvedJ 



Whether it was during an x-block or a Friday after school, students] 
at BHS were constantly participating in some form of activity. Cui 
ture and language clubs, honor societies, and community service 
organizations were just some of the clubs that BHS had to offer. 
These clubs and activities provided students with a positive outlet, 
which benefited the members, school, and community. 





Be [Cre^^ 

In a world overwhelrnS^^i5iSlS^fTnofegy, one o^^^KsTffHngs | 
in life is to simply be creative. Think outside the box. Whether 
you sculpt, take pictures, sing, or act, being inventive is not only 
a way to show a different side of you, but also to explore your 
passions.

Our World 




"Over the summer, I spent seven weeks volunteering in the Volta region of Ghana. I worked in an orphan- 
age, taught in a school, and did HIV Awareness work. What inspired me most was the kids at the orphan- 
age. Though many of them had HIV, they were persistent and resilient, determined to make the most of their 
lives. To work with them, and help make their lives a little better, was a really rewarding experience." 



Odd Job

This summer I started work- 
ing at Crestview Kennel in 
Bedford. I always wanted 
to work with animals as a 
zookeeper, but I'm not old 
enough to volunteer at a 
zoo, I have to be 18. Now 
I take part in the care and 
maintenance of about 40 
dogs. Seeing all those dogs, 
Koppy to see me everyday is 
amazmg. 

ii\ was a computer tech guy 
at BHS, I basically set up 
all the computers in the 
system with Derek Ching 
and Brandy Reed over 
the summer. I still know 
nothing about computers, 
but I know how to set them 
up, take them down, and 
move them. ^ 

Be [Adventurous] While you're in high school, you probably have a job. We never seem to hove enough 
cosh in our pockets. Working hard and still getting paid minimum wage isn't always fun, but we oil had fun 
memories from odd customers, or making new friendships with our coworkers, people you never would have as- 
sociated with except at work. Most of us were working at CVS, department stores, restaurants, and some of us 
even had more unique jobs like working at kennels and helping the Lone and Davis Schools. 



C^On half days, I'm a chaper- 
one for the Lone and Davis 
School students. I've seen 
an animal show where I got 
to touch a turtle, saw Beverly 
Hills Chihuahua, and even 
went to Fun World. It's a lot 
of fun because I get to visit 
different places, getting paid 
to re-live my childhood. 



needed this job at 
shalls to pay for the Belize 
trip. For the first 3 months, 
I channeled my perfection- 
ism in my job. I organized 
the boxes in the shoe 
department, making sure 
they were all aligned. 




What Went 



2008 



Students at BHS bring many things 
to Bedford Day. They raise funds 
for their classes with dunk tanks and 
kissing booths and also show the 
town what happens in school. Some 
groups that took part were the robot- 
ics team, the school chorus, and the 
bond. 



On January 13th, 2008 the Buc Stop 
opened for business. A school store run 
by the students in the Business classes, the 
Buc Stop is a convenient place to pur- 
chase school apparel, snacks, and other 
items. It is located in lower C hall. 





In 2008, government classes had a mock 
debate. Students divided into Republican 
or Democratic parties and represented 
either Barack Obama or John McCain. 
They worked to persuade their fellow 
students to vote for their candidate. 



On February 4th, 2009, the long awaited annual Mr. 
BHS was quite a show as contestants Tommy Borkovic, 
Ben Bosco, Alex Bradford, Jomin Fine, David Finkelstein, 
Nick Neveux, and Nick Tate competed for the prestigious 
title. However it was ultimately Alex who the judges 
deemed fit to wear the crown. 





osted the First 



Annual Fashion Show at BHS. Senior guys and gals 
strutted their stuff on the runway to raise money for 
their All Night Graduation Party. The show was a 
success and the participants looked phenomenal! 



On At BHS 

-2009 




The Multicultural performance on February! 1 th, 2009 was a fantastic show of students' background here at BHS. Th^^^^j^ 
Dean from Brandeis shared some poems, while the Marblehead Choir and the Step Team showcased their African Hel 
tage through song and dance. Laura Castaneda celebrated her heritage with her fellow Latinos in an amazing perfor- 
mance of different Latino music and dance. Emily Chen performed on the Guzheng or Chinese zither to represent her 
Chinese background. World Drumming and the chorus performed "Dhoom" from an Indian Bollywood film. At the end, 
a presentation of "Stand By Me" was shown, sung bv^^rent singers all over the world. 




The Final Touch 




Claddagh Rings Blue Hats Spirit Shirts 

Just For Kicks 





Flip Flops Converse 



A tree, dedicated to Janine King who passed away October 
8th, 2007, was planted in the high school's senior courtyard. 
Each student held a yellow balloon, representing the Jamai- 
can flag, Janine's heritage, or a purple balloon, Janine's 
favorite color. Janine, we hope you have found peace in 
eternal life.

This past year for the Class of 2009 has been a fun, stressful, and reflec- |' 
tive time. It's the final chapter of a book that began when, holding onto our 
parents' hands for dear life, we took our first steps into Pre-School and Kinder- ^ 
garten. What we've learned and experienced in the last days of high school 
we take with us as we begin our life beyond graduation. For the seniors of 
2009 the transition from a High School student to on aspiring adult has been a 
difficult, yet worthwhile prologue to the rest of our lives.

^^Looking back on our childhood, it is amaz- 
ing to see the progression that has taken 
place in our lives. As a class, we have a re- 
markable variety of characters who create 
a well-rounded and amiable atmosphere in 
which to learn and live. This sense of diver- 
sity has made us all stronger and taught us 
the traits in ourselves that will withstand for 
years to come. From play dates to prom 
dates and intramural soccer to division 
league champions, we have all flourished 
in our own individual ways, and have each 
other to thank for it. This bond will remain 
for eternity as we share the sacred memo- 
ries of what has brought us together dur- 
ing our time here in Bedford. I am proud 
to say that I have had the luxury of being 
among such talented, intelligent and conge- 
nial people: Bedford High School's Senior 
Class of 2009. »

With the beqinning of each new school year, c sea of new faces aopear at BHS. 
No. I'm not talkinp about those silly freshman. BHS is not only comprised of students from 
Bedford, but also from Boston and Honscom Air Force Base. With parents in 
the military, student from the base have had the unique experience of traveliF 
across not only the United States, but also many exciting parts of the 
world. This color coordinated map exemolifies the freauency ^ot,

Be [Tenacious] 



Tenacious- persistent, refusing to 
give up or give in; remaining constant 
to a purpose, idea, or task in the face 
of obstacles or discouragement 



If there ever was a time to enjoy the high school experience fully without 
worrying about the future or being the low man on the totem pole, it had 
to be Junior year. The perfect balance between feeling like high school 
will never end, and the anticipation of senior year creeping slowly over 
the horizon, junior year is an extremely fun and exciting time to be a 
student. Sure, the course load is a burden, but it only makes those good 
times that much more exciting when the weight of class work is temporarily 
lifted from our minds. Being a junior as opposed to a senior leaves you 
feeling firmly attached to your school (both feet are still securely inside 

^^^^the door), yetthere is a certain share 




of leadership and a 
feeling of "running 
the campus". 





Junior year is the most important part of our high school experience. We can 
finally call ourselves upperclassmen and finally get to drive ourselves and our friends 
around. We get to invite people to our own semi and prom for the first time and can 
participate in the infamous bleacher painting. However, even though we wish it was, 
this year isn't all about having fun. We're in harder classes and get more work and 
have to start studying for the test that can make or break our future, the SAT. Colleges 
have become top priority and we're all starting to think about what it will be like to fi- 
nally be out on our own. Once we finish junior year we'll finally be seniors and almost 

in the clear so keep working hard, we're almost there!^^

Be [Ready] 

As of right now, oil members of the class of 201 1 ore halfway through their 
high school career. We only have two more years, and then we leave BHS, moving 
on to bigger and better things. Maybe you have spent the past two years dedicat- 
ing yourself solely to school, or have completely slacked off, or maybe (hopefully) 
have been working on having the time of your life. Whatever you have been doing, 
look ahead to the next two years and think about how you want to use them. What 
mark do you want to leave at BHS? How do you want to look back on your high 
school years? If you like the way things are going, then keep it up! But if you want 
a change, or if you want to leave a different mark change it up and try something 
new. We only have two more years to go, we're halfway through.

Be [Careful] 

**The beginning of freshman year was a little nerve wracking for everyone. It's weird to think that a school 
that's only across the street is a whole different world. We had been in middle school for so long, and transitioning 
from 7th grade to 8th grade was not a huge step. As we transitioned from 8th grade to 9th things got a whole lot 
different. We all had to enter a school where there would now be three other grades ahead of us. We would now be 
the youngest. We all heard rumors that the "freshies" would be slammed into lockers, and shoved into trash cons. But 
that was not true. Freshman year has taught us to become more independent and stand up for what we believe in. As 
a freshman we were also introduced to a lot of new people. Some of us have been with each other since kindergar- 
ten, but now we were introduced to people from different places such as Hanscom Air Force Base and people that 
have moved to Bedford from different states and even different countries. The thing I think is unique about the freshman 
class is that a lot of us have siblings that are seniors. That gave us some comfort on entering the High School because 
we had a familiar face there to say hi to in the hallway and to show us around, because they have been in the School 
for the past couple of years. I have discovered that in the High School people are not afraid to be who they are, 
everyone's there own person. Personally, I was amazed at all the clubs that the High School had to offer as a way for 
students to express themselves and do what they love to do. Such as drama club, anime club, Latin club, and dance 
team, to name a few. Even though it was very nerve wracking on the first day, it was also very comforting to know that 
all of the upperclassmen had been through this before, and knew how we felt. Freshman year has prepared us for the 
years to come. When we come back next year, we will know our way around and will know the people that will be 
there. Freshman year has been great and on behalf of the whole class I can not wait for the years to come in the High 
School."

Q: Did you find your freshman year to be better than how your sister described it? 
A: I honestly think that it has had its ups and downs just like my sis said it would. She had an 
awesome time her freshmen year, but I'd have to say that it's been good so far, just not as 
great as her freshmen year was. 

Q: What do you intend to do during your time at BHS to differentiate yourself from your 
sister? 

A: Well there are a lot of things that I want to do that my sis has already done. The things, 
though, that I'd do to differentiate myself from her are to maybe play some volleyball, take 
some classes she's never taken before, and participate in different clubs than her.

Q: Did you find your freshman year to be better tfian fiow your brotfier described it? 
A: I found nny freshman year to be better then what my brother joey told me it was going to bi 
like. Being somewhat nervous going into this year, it was nice to have an older sibling to show 
me the ropes. I was expecting tfie older kids to push me around, and short passing periods. This 
was not the case. My freshman year is turning out great thanks to my bro's advice. 
Q: What do you intend to do during your time at BHS to differentiate yourself from your 
brother? 

A: What I plan on doing to differentiate my time at BHS from my brother's would just be my 
own person. I have learned a lot from my brother regarding high school, and I will always have 
that in mind.

that the upperclassmen would pick on you because you were a freshman. Thank- 
fully I haven't had much of that.

1 Q: Did you find your freshman year to be better or worse than how your sister said it was going to be? 

A: My sister told me all of the things that I should and should not do as a freshmen before 1 got to high- 
school. Although she was just trying to be helpful, it made me kind of nervous. When she told me that 
people make fun of you for being a freshmen I was scared but when I go to high school I realized that 

no one really does, and if they do that they are kidding. 

Q: What do you intend to do during your BHS tenure to separate your legacy from the your sister's? 
A: I am doing rifle team, which no one in my family has ever done. But, I am not trying to differentiate 
I myself from my sister, I know we are different people, and so does everyone else.

Academics 

Be [Enlightened] 

Learning is what school is all about. It's the reason for its existence, it's the one concept that all 
other things in this school revolve around. Bedford High School offers more than just the 5 core 
subjects of Science, Math, Foreign Language, English, and Social Studies. We also have Art, 
Music, and Occupational Education courses. Our school is fortunate to have teachers who are 
willing to teach students more than those same familiar courses taught in all schools. Our teach- 
ers offer us classes like Marine Biology, French Cinema, World Mythology, and Economics, 
creating a fun and more interesting curriculum to choose from.

world works even more interesting. The core sciences 
of physics, chemistry, and biology are taught here with 
such enthusiasm it's hard not to love discovering how it all 
works. Other sciences like forensics, marine biology, en-

topics that we learned previously.

The Mathematics 



ment 



Be [Analytical] Math is more than having the 
right answer, it's about mastering the process 
that leads to the right answer. Sometimes, that's 
hard and may even become frustrating. Math 
teachers understand the struggles that we go 
through. They focus on the concepts their stu- 
dents need to succeed and put much of them- 
selves into their lessons to make math fun and 
interesting. As math students, we went from 
the simple equations like y = x + 2 , to finding 
the angles of geometrical figures, and finally to 
complex mathematical statements like 
f(x) = ln(x4-78)

"Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes once said 
that "Certainty generally is illusion, and repose is not the 
destiny of man. We hope you leave BHS knowing that the 
study of history and society should be both one or under- 
standing and questioning that which is held to be certain, 
and that your zeal to do so will never cease as you achieve 
_ your dreams. We also hope that as you look back at your 
Difour years of study, that you look upon us as a group whose 
passion is to bring history to life. 

We hope you saw that passion from the high expectations 
and demands for excellence from Ms. Rosecon and Ms. 
Kirkpatrick. We hope you saw history and society brought to 
life from the creativity of Mr. Walsh and the orpanizafional 
efforts of Mr. Fay. We hope you saw it as the ' Brain Trust" of 
Donnelly, Sunderland, and Boschetto constantly strived to im- 
prove our ability to instruct and your ability to think critically. 
We also hope tnat you drew from the impassioned efforts of 
Ms. Lost and Ms. Verrier to become active, compassionate 
citizens of your hometown and country. 

But to a person, including our newest members Ms. Curry 
and Ms. Kornfeld, we would all agree that no matter how 
ardent or noble our efforts may be, the best part of trying to 
bring history to life for students is to watch how students bring 
life to history. Your class has come a long way since your 8th 
grade Conestoga wagon projects. You have been notion- 
D'ally recognized for your historical research. Ever since your 
freshman year, you continually sought to understand history, 
engage yourself in making meaning out of history, and dis- 
play on ability to create ideas and present thoughtful insight 
about the world we live in." Ms. Kirkpatrick ^ ^

The Social Studies 

Be [Historical] The social studies teachers are 
strong motivators and create helpful learning 
environments. Their classes explore cultural, 
political, an^^Riai subjects. How facts are sup- 
ported, and how they are to be interpreted are 
the stuff that make those classes great! Indepen- 
dent thinking, reassuring support, and a sense 
of fun are typical. Remember that if history is 
not learned, past mistakes will be repeated. We 
learn more about our fellow man; mainly their 
history, but through the studies of psychology 
and sociology, also the science behind what 
makes them tick.

There are two things that continually delight 
and surprise me about BHS music students: their 
loyalty to the music program and their personal 
integrity. Students are willing to put in extra time 
to create a good program and parents are willing 
to support and help their children in their efforts. 
People who come to the shows and the concerts 
only see the end product and don't realize the 
time the students have devoted to rehearsal. 

I also appreciate that my music students are 
such good people. It gives me hope for the future 
of the world when I work with these good music 
students.

The 2008-2009 Varsity football team is one to remember. This team is unlike 
any other team to remember, in that they are the best football team to ever come 
through Bedford High School. With a 10-1 regular season record and a Dual 
County League Small Championship title, the 2008 Bucs have the best record 
ever at BHS, and the first league title in 27 years. Prominent seniors were Cap- 
tains Dave Micu, Brendan Gibson, and Joe Tiano, along with undoubtedly one of 
the greatest individual players in BHS history, Ryan Carter. A strong Junior class 
consisting of starters Tim McDonald, Kevin Cangiono, Ben Rose, Matt Tiano, K.C. 
Mondello, Louis Baker, Dylan Gonsalves, Leon "Lucky" Barnes, Tim Pike, and Bran- 
don Watson look to form a strong foundation for next season. Sophomore 

Steven Adams also returns as a starter. DCL All-Stars for this season were 
Ryan Carter, Ben Rose, Tim Pike, K.C. Mondello, Brendan Gibson, Kevin 
Cangiono, Tim McDonald, and Joe Tiano.

Transforming 

Tradition 




The boys soccer team finished their season with an 
impressive record of 11-1-4. The team was lead 
by senior captains Mike Dunlea, Stephen Da- 
lyrmple, and Brett Plugis. The teams success was 
powered by a talented offense and backed by a 
strong defensive line. Senior captain Mike Dunlea 
and Junior Alex Covocks were the bucs leading 
scorers this year helping the bucs move ahead of 
^their opponents. A season highlight came from the 
Bucs win over Concord-Carlise in overtime during 
their first round of the state tournament. The team 
had the best record in Dual County League and 
was honored with the title of Dual County League 
Champs. The team will graduate seniors Scott 
Doherty, Stephen Dalyrmple, Brett Plugis, Ryne 
Tillman, Eric Larson, Minghan Chang, Nick Miz- 
zoni, Mike Dunlea, Hamish McPhail, Thomas Hei- 
man, John Aiken, Davio Dispena, Tommy Barkovic, 
and Eric Johnson. 





The Lady Bucs hod a very successful season this year. They 
were lead by Senior captains Stephanie Crockett and Claire Criniti and 
Junior captain Gabby Bard. The girls ended their regular season with 
a 7-2-6 record and went on to win the next 3 games in the Small DCL 
Division League. Their final gome was bittersweet against the tenacious 
and challenging Newburyport. The Bedford girls scored the first goal, 
and Newburyport fired back to tie up the game. The game ended 
in overtime when Newburyport scored the final goal. Despite losing 
against Newburyport in the finals, the girls clenched their first Division 
title for girl's soccer in Bedford High School history! The girl's had an 
amazing season with a Division banner to prove it.

This year for cross-country was full of changes. The cross- 
country mega-team was divided into two different smaller 
teams, the boys and the girls. Each team also received a 
new coach, Coach Shilder for the boys, Coach Hebert for 
the girls. Times were tough and many people suffered nu- 
merous injuries. However, as a whole, the cross-country 
teams became a force to be reckoned with. The girls won 
two of their meets for the first time in years, and the boys 
qualified for All-States, a feat that hasn't been achieved in 
more than a decade. Johnathan Gualt placed third in the 
Massacusettts State Championship boys varsity meet in

Riflry is 98% mental, 2% 
physical. The new shoot- 
ers this year show plenty 
of promise. We're third in 
the state so far and aim- 
ing for first, as we have 
not held the distinction 
since 2005.

Bedford Rifle team has had a 
tradition of excellence with their high 
standard of achievment rising higher 
every year. "The rifle team doesn't 
quite get enough appreciation for 
what they do. It's a lot of work and it 
takes more skill than people realize. 
It requires concentration and endur- 
ance. You have to force yourself to 
hold uncomfortable positions for 
extended amounts of time, everything 
precise, and in order." said Nick Tate. 
"Every year we consistently do very 
well, and this year was no exception." 
Coaches Richard Carson and team 
Captains Ethan Harrington, Nick Tate, 
and Victor Wang lead the team to 
a season of success with the help of 
fourteen underclassmen. Senior Ethan 
Harrington broke the school record 
by shooting a 278 replacing Tristan 
Bard.

haven't played up to our potential or our 
expectations but when we needed a key 
victory or a statement game we always 
found o way to get it done. As the sea-

"Grade or Class has been thrown out the window. 
Their ultimate goal is to be successful and they've

both the Braintree and St. Mary's competi-

many newcomers the girls were able to form 
a solid routine and perfect difficult stunts. 
The girls learned from each other and came 
together to consistently perform at a high 
level during basketball games, practices, and

AFS Inlercultural Club 




The AFS Intercultural Club's goal is to acquaint members with each others' heritage, and to study cultural 
heritages from around the world. The club explores cuisine, studies holiday traditions and dances, and 
delves into the origins of cultures. 





The AFS Intercultural Club at SHS has 
lively and dedicated membership. Two 
highlights made this year special: Cheyenne 
FoxTree McGrath and Amanda Lee taught 
fellow students about native cultures in the 
Americas, and described their participation 
at PowWows. At another meeting, Mrs^ 
Laurencio described what it is like to li 
in modern Brazil. She also talked abo 
Carnaval and gave members a Samba 
son! Most meetings include sampling ethnic 
foods, such as empanadas, wojape, pou- 
tine, cornbread, Spanish rice, and pan de 
queso. Learning about cultures and having 
a good time are always on the agenda at 
the AFS Intercultural Club.

Best Buddies 




Best Buddies works to form relationships between BHS students and students with disabilities (LABB students). Both 
peer buddies and associate members ore encouraged to join in events, and build friendships. The difference between 
a peer buddy and an associate member is that peer buddies are placed in a one-on-one match with a LABBB stu- 
dent and are required to fulfill the weekly and monthly requirements of being a buddy, while associate members are 
students who ore still interested in learning more about Best Buddies before jumping into the commitment. High school 
students find that even though their buddies have disabilities, they still like to have a good time, like everyone else. 




H.O.S.T. 




The HOST club offers students from the Hanscom AFB a chance to welcome the Bedford kids into their 
world. One of the activities is to go bowling at the Hanscom Lanes. It's a great way for both groups

matters of school policy, school climate, and 
student learning. In each grade, three students 
are elected to represent each of BHS's geo- 
graphic areas (Bedford, Hanscom, and Bos- 
ton). Those students join their class presidents 
and representatives from Peer Leaders, Junior 
Mentors, Student Atmosphere Committee, and 
HOST to keep Mr. Sills informed on what's go- 
ing on from a student's perspective at BHS.

^ The Yearbook! 




To produce the book of memories that you ore reeding right now, a dedicated staff worked more hours than yc 
could ever imagine. Everyone did a little of everything: taking pictures, writing captions, creating new pages one 
spreads, and editing proofs. With the support and guidance of Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Santos, the hard work of chie' 
editors, Aimee Young, Chelsea Niemeyer, Jenna Kuhn, and Nick Neveux, and the helpful input of staff members 
this book became one of the best yearbooks that BHS has EVER produced. Well, at least we think so. :)

The Lookout is the BHS student newspaper— a veritable institution. It is our Boston Globe. Each issue is creat-

to produce it each month.

The club is a great place for writers to meet 
And show their literary wit. 
If thou hast a poem or rhyme in thy head 
Just finalize and write everything out. 
They will critique it, the rhymes that you said 
And then discover what it's all about. 
After many moons we publish your rhyme 
and work on contributions for a year, 
At the end of the year you will find the poem 
you submitted in the mag, but don't fear.

It all takes one man to put this together, but it takes many to bring it to life. 
Chief Edris chose the musical "Kiss Me Kate," based on Shakespeare's The 
Taming of the Shrew. "Kate" is a play within a play. The cost worked long 
and hard from November to March perfecting the dialogue, the music and 
choreography. The musical ran from March llth-14th, 2009, and enjoyed 
great success. The crew spent hours upon hours building the intricately 
beautiful set the last few weeks before opening night. All the time spent 
certainly paid off, with a full house in the audience the lost two nights. The 
show was enjoyed by all, and everyone involved was pleased with the 
outcome.

Band&Orchestra 




BHS has always had a stellar music program, and this year was no differ- 
ent. The band expanded its repetoire from classical to things like "Seasons 
of Love" from Rent, and continues to play like it always has, like a machine. 
The Orchestra has adopted Bollywood Score as one of their genres with 
the performance of "Dhoom Machale", and Mr. Moffo and Mr. Felker still 
lead the groups with an iron baton, getting every part exact so that the 
band can sound as tight as possible. Outgrowths of these two ensembles 
are the jazz band and the pep band, who also went on to have a good 
year. 

1 : Eileen Goodrich playing her viola for the class. Good thing she's been practicing! 2: Freshman violinist Daniel Lu sifts through his heap of music 
sheets, but just can't seem to find what he's looking for. 3: Shaylynn McGrory and Jeonine Cullen talking between pieces. Don't let Mr. Maffa 
hear! 4: Phillip Moffo shows off his musical knowledge as he shows Victoria Clare and Jacqui Cohen the tricks of the trade. 5: Jocqui Cohen, trying 
to get in tune. 6: Trumpets? In the orchestra? Myles Veomont, the only non-string player in the orchestra, warming up. 7: As much as he loves to 
play his oxe, Maffa enjoys teaching his students about scales and posture more. 8: Walt Mayo, Robert Santamaria, and Robert Daley blowing the 
roof off with there sheer trumpet firepower. 



9: Andrew Thomas . 10: A handful of flutes and a couple from the brass try to harmonize their unique sounds. 1 1 : Some of the saxo- 
phones, trombones, and trumpets playing in unison 12: Mr.Felker conducts his band practice during an X-Block period, days before the 
winter concert.

The Line 
Up 



The Pep Band of 2008 came as 
a surprise to everybody, the marching 
band directors, the former band members, 
the newbies, everyone. It v^as simply that 
the band did not have enough people to 
continue on as a marching band. There just 
v^asn't enough people enlisted to make a 
complete marching band, so Mr. Felker 
was lost as to what to do. Cancelling the 
band was not an option here, it had been 
o long-standing BHS tradition. This was not , 
something to throw away. 

So what did Mr. Felker decide to ■ 
do? He assessed the options and came up 
with this: the BHS would have a pep band. 
Basically it is a marching band that does 
not march, as shown by the C-C pep band, i 
Ours was not as large, but it more than 
made up for the lack of people. 

The lineup was as diverse as the mui 
sic that was played. They had guitar, bass, 
drums, horns, brass, and woodwinds. The 
only reason that the pep band was made 
was a lack of attendance, and that contin- 
ued to be a problem as they lost their flute 
and a baritone horn player in the duration 
of the bond, but it still played some of the 
best music that has ever been played at o 
BHS football game.

Student Art 

\rt is the backbone of a society, and since high school is a microcosm of society as 
3 whole, art is the backbone of this school. It provides the kids with a creative outlet 
n which to channel their emotions and ideas. Art can take many different forms, from 
vorking with paint, ceramics, or mixed media to graphic design. All of these have viable 
jses, and our teaching staff delivers the instruction on how to moke you a better artist. 
A/hether you want to create the next Mono Lisa, design buildings, develop video games, 
3r just pound out your frustrations on a piece of clay, the Arts are something that should 
lever die.

meaning and happiness."

I want to endlessly thank: 

My friends past, present, and future. For talking until we 
fall asleep, driving without much aim, going to the some 
place every Friday night, fast food, being too loud, eating 
cheese and bread at the pork across from Whole Food, 
theatre. Madrigal, A Copella, Stylus, JSA, Dl, and Color 
Guard/Bond, opposite tastes in everything, nineties, 
music, squeezing in the backseat, pools, basements and 
videogames, witty banter, Facebook threads, movie mara- 
thons, self-timer pictures, Sharpie tattoos, eating barbecue 
chips at the beach, favorite movies versus favorite films, 
fumbling valiantly through awkward moments, just show- 
ing up, Cotch Phrase and the one game of Trivial Pursuit, 
arguments about anything and everything, secret lan- 
guages, dressing up for no reason, words of encourage- 
ment, and sitting over homemade pizza, decjartng'tiow 
much we mean to each other. Thank you. The influence 
of oil of your friendships has shaped me into the person I 
am. I will never forget a single moment of these years. 
My teachers, and two in particular. To Mr, Sunderland 
whom after being my history teacher for three years, " 
now gives me disdainful looks in the hallways-thank you 
?or being the best teacher that I have ever hod, and to 
Mr.Sheinfeld for never being lost for words. 
My family. Mom and Dad, I con never express how grate- 
ful I am to you both for your loves, support and encour- 
agement. You two have never told me who or what to be, 
but instead allowed me to find out for myself. Everything 
that I am, I owe to you both. 

To Britta: we're friends! Thank you for our weirdo tele- 
pathic relationship and for everything that we shore. It's 
impossible for me to express how much I love and admire 
you. You're the best seester I've ever hod!

Ashley and Aaron, even though I never talked to you I or' 
sore you helped me along the way. Next I would like to 
thank Sarah. I sot here for a while thinking of what to soy 
and at one point I thought of something, but that's gone

has been the greatest time of my life going out with you, 
will never forget you. Finally for my friends I did not wont

route and decided to go with this; 
Thanks (enter your name here), you ore one of my best 
friends and I will always remember our friendship.

and gave me something to look forward to when I woke 
up every morning. Jesse, Becco, Nathan, Chorles, Assof, 
Abby, Nick, Jess, and anyone I forgot to mention and will 
subsequently feel like a complete jerk for leaving out, you

the chillness we shared. You made the bad times olright 
and the good times better. My teachers, for always push- 
ing me and being willing to help me out when I needed it.

b begin with, I need to thank the triumvirate of the social 
tudies department: Jim, who hod the privilege of seeing 
ne way too much for three years in o row, Dove, who 
ikely got on overdose of me in one year, and Rich, who, 
jntil this year, only hod to watch me from afar. I have 
tontinuolly showered them with my high regards, but I 
«ave no qualms about repeating myself: their critical think- 
ng attitude allowed us (their guinea-pig class of 2009) 
o gain a global perspective on the world today, as well 
3S become the independent thinkers we all are. You ore 
jreot people, as well as inspiring teachers. I wont to thank 
iich (the other Rich, Mr. Stephenson), for allowing me to 
ive in the moth office for a year and for treating me like a 
)erson, not just a student; I loved our conversations, 
hate to sound typical, but I need to thank my family, 
^atty has always been there: as a role model, as my 
jrother to talk to and joke with. My parents managed to 
\elp me succeed in doing my best. Most of who I am and 
vho I will become I owe to them. Sincerely, to the three of 
'Ou, thank you. 

honks to oil of those I know too well, to those I wish I hod 
jotten to know better, to every person that ever made me 
-mile, and, of course, to my friends. You have truly mode 
ny life.

First grade seems like just yester- 
day, 

• A class of kids who played all day. 
Recess throughout Davis and Lane,' 
Even the classes: simple and plain 
We showed little appreciation. 
Except for now, at graduation. 
Little by little, we came of age. 
Learning together, at every stage. 
But now we're leaving, moving 
apart, 

Headed to college, it's a new start 
Senior year fades, a mere memory
